At the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco begins in the Marina, where the City meets the Bay. The Marina district is home to a large marina and its fleet of exotic yachts. Residents in the Marina appreciate the sun swept views, the walking, running, and biking trail that runs along the Bay, and the wide open grassy Marina Green that is in constant use by kite fliers, volleyball and soccer players.
Real Estate in the Marina offers a wide variety of architectural styles. Marina bungalows are charming two-level homes while the houses along the stunning Palace of Fine Arts lagoon and the Bay are grander with spectacular views. Multi-unit buildings are also prevalent which allow for those new to San Francisco and the younger just-out-of college set to enjoy this vibrant neighborhood.
Chestnut Street is the main commercial area that runs through the Marina. Upscale restaurants and boutiques, bars with energetic nightlife, and conveniences are all within walking distance from most properties in the Marina. The neighborhood is flat which makes biking and walking key means of transportation. Lombard Street offers quick transportation to Downtown or across the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin.
